September Magnolia-licious Challenge - Boo Boo File

Boo-Boo File!!!

The Challenge for this month over at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog is to make a cute little file folder out of envelopes. I will not lie, I made like 30. Hahahha. And I showed everyone I knew how cute they were.
I made this one for my son. It is a Boo-Boo File.
The inserts have a band-aid for when he gets hurt and a cute little monster to color to make him feel better.

These are the inserts, each with a different monster to color and band-aid for the boo-boo!

This is the file open with the inserted inside. It has a magnetic closure.

Applause! Yes Applause is fitting today!!! First I won the Copic Creations Challenge #11... WHOooo Hooo. The prize is Fabulous!!!!
A GC to Mo's Digital Pencil... I have a wish list to Mo's a mile long!

Second. My Boy, he is 5... has narrowed down his possible career paths. He informed me he still had time to choose, but that his top choices are ROCKSTAR, RACE CAR DRIVER or Engineer(his fall back, and his Dad's profession).

He has decided he will probably join the Black Eyed Peas. They Rock. At least he is choosing a 'band' that is successful I suppose.

I made this for him. He is a good boy, and I know he will like it. He loves green by the way!

This image is Roxxor By Kael. You can find images such as these at the Color Me club HERE on DeviantART. These are placed here by artists for others to color FOR FREE. And these artist are the real deal! It is important to maintain the integrity of the artist, follow thier requirements if any, and never erase the signature of the artist.
Kael boasts on his artist page that he does cheap commissions, so if you were ever in want of your own personal character... you should look into Kael!!!

This is the inside of my card!

a few of my favorite things.

Lately I have been asked by more than a few people where I get certain things... and they are always a few of my favorite things, so I am happy to share.

I am a very conservative yet semi-hippiechic kinda girl. I have two kids, and I am not real interested in being a stiletto mom. My clothes are soft, versatile, often organic. I LOVE 'crafted' clothing and jewelry.

I like to goof around often. Here we are at Arts, Beats & Eats in Pontiac, Michigan over Labor Day Weekend, wearing hats from Webhats... and glasses from who knows where. But my son and I LOVE funny hats. (I am the pizza)

I also discovered that I LOVE the designs here at ellembee.
I will be wearing more of these this year.
I can already see myself in a few more shirts.

You may have already knew this, but I love CraeVita.
I barely EVER wear ANY jewelry, even my wedding ring.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my bracelet that my hubby had Custom made for me here.
It is simply amazing. Goes with everything, and is stunningly crafted.

If you see me on a pretty regular day, I will more than likely be wearing one of these organic tees. I am ABSOLUTELY addicted to them. I have a million, literally. well, I have one for MORE than everyday of the week, that is for sure. I HIGHLY recommend the Yoga pant, worth every penny. I am rockin those in the very first picture at the top of this blog, you may not have noticed, since I have a pizza on my head. If you are in Michigan, you can get them at It's a Matter of Taste in the carryout... and you can get the best meal eva of course too... The missy pasta definitely qualifies as one of my favorite things as well.

Okay, so those are my FAVORITE things.

P dot S. If you were in my kitchen and washed your hands or used the lotion... I get asked this A LOT... the soap is from Stonewall Kitchen. Yes it is AWEsome.
